April 15, 2021 - IMPORTANT NOTICE
It is with a sad heart that I post this update.
I have permanently closed my Lending Center. This decision was brought on by a sudden change in rules on Marapets regarding tips. I do not know why nor do I understand this action on Marapets behalf.
For more than 15 years, I have maintained one of the largest Lending Centers on Marapets and helped countless players. It has taken a LOT of time, effort, and mp to obtain all the items, train pets, and age minis to help the Mara community. Not to mention, I have spent hours with individuals for the actual lending process. There have been many bulk requests that took over an hour of time to lend everything. All I asked for in return was 2% of the cost of the items, which saved players from spending a vast amount of MP/time either by buying the items or doing the temple.
I believed any Lending Center is a luxury offered to other players. There is no gain to a lender without the ability to request a set tip. As the items are our positions, the lender should be able to dictate the cost for lending and not the other way around.
These tips are what have allowed me over the years to continue growing my lending center to help more players. No one is ever forced to borrow from myself or anyone else. As a borrower, a Lending Center such as mine is an alternative to having to buy the items needed at full cost.
I cannot help but feel like this is a personal attack and I am very saddened and hurt by these current actions. Thank You to all the individuals that have been supported me over the years. I have kept on going due to your kind words.
This site started as a place for my Lending Center and has grown to a full guide over time. Given my decision to close the Lending Center, I will not be spending real $$$ to renew my site in November. I will leave it up for now but do not intend to make any more updates. After 6 more months my site will official be shut down completely.
